Take a look at this memo on the ICE's website...

"When weighing whether an exercise of prosecutorial discretion may be warranted for a given alien, ICE officers, agents , and attorneys should consider all relevant factors, including, but not limited to:

(...)
- whether the person has a U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse, child, or parent."



Interesting, no?

And some still want to argue saying there is no such thing as an "Anchor Baby".

Well - we know that. They aren't coming here having more babies than anyone else because they can afford to have babies and take jobs that pay incredibly low. We always see these illegals exploiting their US born children shouting how they cannot be deported now because of those kids, those kids were their easy way around the immigration laws of this country and to the welfare office.

Don't get me started on this...illegals get preference for government housing benefits, using the "child" citizen as the gateway to subsidized housing, and other benefits. Not to mention food stamps, then used to buy food that they use in their illegal taco stands. The whole thing is criminal...

One more time:
until the overly broad language in the 14th amendment is changed...
NOTHING else matters.

In other words, you don’t object to people entering this country for the express purpose of giving birth to a U.S. citizen. Even if it means they do so simply to avail themselves of our tax-funded benefits and services, at an enormous burden to U.S. taxpayers. Nor do you care if the parents hold no allegiance to this country, or stake in its future. Or, that we are now a free-for-all and laughingstock of the world. Heck, they aren’t even required to actually reside here, but that’s okay, as long as they give birth on U.S. soil, their children deserve U.S. citizenship. Yes, that’s just fine and dandy.

From your post, I got the impression you support this abuse. If I misunderstood your comments, including your snarky closing remark -- "now you can get back to your regularly scheduled circle jerk..." then I certainly stand corrected.

We say to impoverished Mexicans, “See this river? Don’t cross it. If you do, we’ll give you good jobs, a drivers license, citizenship for your kids born here and eventually for you, school for said kids, public assistance, governmental documents in Spanish for your convenience, and a much better future. There is no penalty for getting caught. Now, don’t cross this river, hear?”

The U.S. doesn’t actually prohibit smoking, but I do get the gist of your post. It’s similar to allowing the legal sale of rolling paper, while marijuana remains illegal. Of course, it can be argued that rolling paper is legal because some roll their own tobacco. But, in reality, the majority of people who buy rolling paper do so to roll a joint, and everyone, including the government knows it.

Yes, our immigration enforcement is a joke, which is precisely why illegal immigration is totally out of control. An unenforced law is the same as no law.

Very true. That has been the exact policy of this administration and the previous one for sure.

No wonder our economy is fast headed south. It's pretty much "come one, come all for a great life of food stamps, free health care, jobs if you want them". Once here even if they have zero job skills and work ethic, they are not allowed to fail.
